The formation of the Paradise Falls slaver organization is a mystery; however, the earliest known records date back to the early 23rd century. The earliest known record is the slavers' extermination of the town of Ridgefield when a citizen named Arkansas was a young boy. The slave trading partnership between the Paradise Falls slavers and the slavers of the Pitt was already in place by the 2250s.
Herbert Dashwood, born in 2207, claims that back in his day, the slavers were a fairly disorganized group. According to Dashwood's recollection, he and his traveling partner Argyle had escaped from Paradise Falls. Shortly before their departure, they were approached by Penelope Chase, the slavers' leader at the time, also known as the "Black Widow," who was posing as a fellow slave escapee, and were tricked into taking her along with them into the secretive underground settlement of Rockopolis. Her plan worked, but it had also resulted in her death at the hands of Argyle. Nevertheless, a slaver team led by a man named Rollings stormed Rockopolis and began to capture and enslave its citizens, and sent them off on the long journey to the Pitt for handover.
Around the year 2250, Harmon Jurley became the new leader of the slavers. However, at an unknown date, Eulogy Jones murdered the previous leader and took his position, and still acts as the leader of the slavers.
As of 2277, a team of slavers led by Leroy Walker had occupied the Lincoln Memorial, in order to prevent escaped slaves from owning it for the purpose of boosting morale or inciting a revolt. For this reason, they began planning raids on the Museum of History to burn historical artifacts relating to Abraham Lincoln. In addition, a man named Ramsey led a small outpost at a train tunnel near Fort Constantine, its purpose being to scout the wilderness and capture and enslave travelers. Throughout the Capital Wasteland, small teams of slavers will roam the wilderness in search of slaves or running slaves back to Paradise Falls.
Other operations by the slavers in 2277 include enslavements of Little Lamplighters, attempting to track down the A3-21 android, and harassing the citizens of Big Town for tribute. Eulogy Jones had also attempted to use Seagrave Holmes as an envoy for his efforts in Rivet City.

Eulogy Jones is a unique 45-year-old individual. He dresses as smoothly as possible for a Wasteland Dweller and leads by persuasion and intelligence, getting others to do his dirty work. But the man is definitely dangerous; if you mess with his slaving operation, he'll be the first one to put a bullet in your brain. Eulogy got to where he is exactly as you'd expect: by being the craziest thug in a town full of crazy thugs. He'll tell you that he did it the old-fashioned way: hard work. In truth, he used his slaves as prostitutes, and consequently, Eulogy knew nearly every secret in the camp. Eventually, he killed the former leader and took over. Every plot against his life has failed, and every Slaver in the camp has learned to back off when Eulogy loses his temper. Eulogy rules by fear."
